X230 lid closed settings not working

2012-11-02, 9:54 AM



I like to hook up my Thinkpad to power at the office, close the lid and use external display, keyboard, mouse.


This was no problem on my X61, but my brand-new X230 can´t do this right.


At first, every time I set the AC power setting for "Events" "Lid closed" to "Do nothing", when I applied, closed and reopened the power settings they were back to "Sleep" by magic.


I then created a new power scheme, and now it sticks, so when I check the settings for AC power, the "Lid closed" setting remains "Do nothing".


But when I close the lid, the computer goes to sleep. Every time. The settings say "do nothing", but it goes to sleep.


Lenovo, this is not working. Please fix. Now.
